-two. it is not entirely the unthinkable. let's go over one of the most plausible possibilities. right now president obama can safely count on 201 electoral votes. that is unchanged from yesterday. romney can safely count on 191. that is changed. that has changed because north carolina, and let me bring this up today here. north carolina was moved to the tossup category just yesterday. that accounts for the 15 votes that moved away. so where he had at 206, 206 to 201, now 191. and les turn now to of rmney who needs to win north carolina. he is still up in the polls by a significant margin, but four points. yesterday it was more than five. we have that. romney would need also to win, ju as before, the state of florida, 29 votes. let's get that. and he is up two points in florida. he also needs virginia where he is up by one point. let's go there. he is building 248. colorado, where both candidates are tied up right now 48-48. we will give that to governor romney as well. we will move that into his column, 257. president obama right now is up by two in iowa, what the purpose of this scenario we will assumed
. >> stephanie: right. new surveys in which obama held a solid lead in ohio, eight point lead in wisconsin, but romney aids insisted things are on the right track. >> of course she didn't. of course we are. of course we are on the right wrack. >> stephanie: we feel we are in a very good place and this race is exactly where we wanted to be. and their political director said right now their firewalls are burning. >> firewalls don't burn they prevent burning from getting through. >> i assumed there was a wall of fire. [ mocking laughter ] >> oh, my god. >> stephanie: there has been little movement since his first debate surge. several pollsters are suggesting that mitt romney is claiming the polls are wrong across the board. i imagine mitt romney -- is he still collecting unneeded canned goods at this point? that the red cross -- not specifically we don't need that please don't send that. >> yeah. ♪ there are all kinds of goods, canned goods, vacuum packed on your grocery's shelve ♪ ♪ in the value of the giant douche bag ♪ [ laughter ] >> stephanie: back with sexy l
it another way, that mitt romney is going to either win or equal, right, president obama's record with the women's vote, i think that would be -- i think the facts show that would be a disaster for american women in terms of their standing and if they go that way, it's almost -- i hate to say it it's almost they'll deserve what they get. >> right. i can't -- i certainly don't think that the democrats have not said enough about it. you know? it seems like every campaign email and video reminds women of republican's record on rape -- not record on rapes, but comments on rape and records on abortion and birth control. and you are talking about health care medicare by disproportionately affect women. women tend to outlive men, and these programs are strongly relied on by women. >> bill: there may be other issues where they are close where they stand o are they similar in position or there's not that much of a big difference, when it comes to women's issues there is no doubt about it, that president obama is absolutely on the right side and mitt romney is dead wro
. >> bill: all right. so once again, mr. obama didn't explain what happened on 9/11 in libya. once again he said his administration is investigating. but so much, so much misinformation has been but the out there by the obama administration you would think that six weeks after the attack some kind of clarity could be put forth by the president he doesn't have to do it because the press is not pushing him. brian williams, one of the few journalists mr. obama is talking with, had a chance to ask him some tough questions, mr. williams passed. >> the assessment of your intelligence community as we stand here is that it was a spontaneous terrorist attack. were you happy with what you were able to learn as it unfolded? it went on for several hours. >> well, as i have said, brian, we're going to do a full investigation, obviously when four americans are killed, you know, you have to do some soul searches in terms of making sure that all our systems are where they need to be. and that's what we're going to find out. but, who what i'm confident about is that we will be able to figure out who perpetr
? and right now, six weeks, we're not getting -- we're getting stonewalled. his answers, barack obama's answers are stonewalled. and all i do is break it down. he he has got to know as i said in the talking points, who told carney and rice to say what they say. he has to know. wait a minute, have you been in this business a long time, okay? all right. is there any excuse for that question not being asked by two highly paid news people, schieffer and williams? any excuse? >> why wasn't it asked by governor mitt romney. >> bill: we already run into that. >> romney -- he is the president with all due respect. who gave these officials these marching orders. >> bill: romney has his own reasons for not asking it but it's the job of schieffer and williams to ask it and they didn't. >> three things. number one, there is a legitimate scandal on why there wasn't more security for the ambassador in benghazi. why the intelligence failed to predict that this militia was going to carry out a deadly attack. that's one scandal. then there is the attack itself. i think it's going to be very very diffi
obama during his administration. have you been very kind to him, all right? is there any excuse in the world for the president at this point in time not answering fundamental questions about this situation? not holding a press conference and answering fundamental questions? >> we are 10 days from what everyone is calling. >> bill: are you going to make an excuse for him. >> we are 10 days from what everyone is calling the most important election of our time. do you realistically believe for example the house oversight committee for the republicans would be requesting truth justice in the american way we are seeking political points. it is a very difficult time. what we he answer at the press conference. >> bill: well, he knows. >> is he going to tell the cia's mission in libya? >> no. is he going to say this is who told jay carney this. this is who told susan rice. this this is what i think happened there heads are going to roll. >> i spoke with three republic senators yesterday, including senator jim inhofe the republic of oklahoma who said the senate foreign relations committe
genuinely believe this is a guy who wants to do right by his people. barack obama, you're seeing a human being there. and the camera doesn't lie. obviously, will this weigh an election -- obviously, it leans clearly for obama, but what i love about this is what you see with these guys is the same what you see with the guys in the streets of hoboken that were affected. i believe people are overwhelmingly are tremendously decent including politicians, and you're seeing that. >> is it too cynical to read all this in? let's be clear. analysis is happening within the washington political bubble. but i think if you're watching on television, you're seeing chris christie doing what he has to do for his state and the president doing what a president does, arriving in a disaster zone offering consolation but also his federal help. >> yeah. that's all true. but it does have a political impact. it's not unreasonable to say what are the politics in terms of the impact after this? but one of the most corrosive things about washington in the last 8, 12 years has been the permanent campaign. and we in
is not the right guy for another four years. >> first, i truly believe that both president obama and mitt romney want to do a grand bargain, but i don't think they have the same leadership ability to get it done. i think president obama's biggest problem is he's not led. and when he had the senate, the house and the white house, he spent too much time on the affordable care act. that poisoned washington, because even though a majority of the american people doesn't want the affordable care act, nonetheless the effort was taken to pass it on a straight party line vote. that poisoned the well. i think the worst of all scenarios is the house stays in republican hands which it's going to. the senate stays in democratic hands and president obama stays in the white house. we haven't gotten any progress on that in the last two years. why do you think it's different in the next two years? by the way, it's likely that the reps take the senate in 2014. so i think you have to be recognizing reality. it's not just who the president is, although that's by far the most important. it's also who controls the ho
it tell you right now that a lot of the promises barack obama made were in iowa. he didn't come through on those promises. i think that's a big deal. wisconsin, i'll be there tomorrow. wisconsin, i think, right now the momentum is with governor romney. we've done a whole lot of winning as republicans in wisconsin. you look at colorado. >> let me stop you in wisconsin because i want to read you something that david axelrod told "the daily caller." >> we expected wisconsin to be closer than last time. it is in our column now, and it's going to be in our column. >> yeah, well, he can say whatever he wants to say. i mean, they haven't been able to win in wisconsin for a long time. they claim that the obama machine was out during the walker recall. we basically crushed them in wisconsin. i have seen firsthand the difference between obama's rhetoric on their ground game and the reality, and the reality is they're not as good as they think they are, but overall besides the ground game talk, this is about the president's policies, the current state of the economy. it is a complete disaster. onl
still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this year. it's all due to the auto bailout. it is working and mitt romney, we remember, opposed it. he wrote that famous op-ed for "the new york times". headline... let detroit fail. where he said don't do anything to help them out. let them go belly up. so, of course, romney campaign realizes panic panic panic panic, oh, my god we're losing ohio which we need. no republican president in over 100 -- no republican has ever been elected president in over 100 years without carrying ohio. so th
from undecided voters, right? like barack obama, i understand he got -- handed a bad economy, but things aren't as much better as i thought they were going to be and i like what mitt romney is saying how he sees the future looking like but i'm not sure how he gets there. >> we hear a lot of swing voters talking about the deficit and the debt. concerned about the economy, the jobs. but that's not abstract. they understand that on a fundamental level and that's a key pitch the republicans have been making. that issue does resonate with people at their kitchen table. >> all right. great conversation. thank you, guys. >> i got one question. one question for you, don. one question. >> yes. >> we're both in ohio. it is all cold. how come you look like you're on gq and i look like the michelin man. >> you should be asking yourself that question, ali velshi. >> thank you, ali. thank you john avalon. appreciate it. now to some serious news here. a new storm is threatening to make recovery efforts worse in the northeast. our meteorologist chad myers is here to tell us how bad it could
that right. how about the obama campaign calculation, amie, on this comment about boehner and mcconnell, dog walking and car washing. the gist of all this, what's the reaction? >> well, it's something you said before. i've heard him talk about it on the campaign trail. he's basically trying to send a message that once this all happens, he will be able to work with republicans, and he'll be able to put this all behind us. he's kind of sending a signal to that everything will be all forgotten. don't think about me as a one-term president anymore, let's all be in this big kumbayah moment. >> maybe not so much. steve, we're seeing some national polls as we look at the numbers. they favor mitt romney while the president leads in some nine swing states. is it your sense that we could see the dreaded elector el popular vote split, and if so, what does that mean? >> well, i think it's very possible this time. i think one of the reasons is mitt romney could be getting really big margins in the south from texas across the south. which would roll up his popular vote. while the president wins some big s
about health care and guy rights and stuff like that. but the obama people know that he has had this opportunity with sandy to get out there and look extremely presidential, to be bipartisan, to kind of wear the mantel of commander in chief in the midst of this national tragedy and they think that that is to their benefit and, of course, people see that and they are playing on that sort of thing, too. he has the advantage of office and it's not to be sneezed at at this stage of the game. >> thank you both for your time tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> thanks, rev. >>> tonight, a developing investigation into mitt romney's plan to train an army of poll watchers to intimidate and mislead you at the polls. it's a big, important story and we have exclusive new video the romney campaign has been trying to stop you from seeing. >>> also, the gop's freak kout over chris christie. they just can't deal with this praise for the president. and now it's sinking to a new low. >>> and george w. bush has a big october surprise for mitt romney. and he's definitely not going to like it. >>> all

"politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, it looks like obama/christie 2012. president obama in new jersey, governor chris christie today toured hard hit areas of hurricane sandy. their survey of the devastation reminded americans of how many people are suffering from the storm and how essential it is for government to help them. and then governor christie, the man mitt romney handpicked to give the keynote address at his convention began to praise president obama. >> obviously i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together and we saw an opportunity to discuss it at length. and then going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks, seeing the president and his concern. he has sprung into action immediately while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. this is our sixth con

right. let's go to virginia. the latest "washington post" poll has president obama clinging to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight-point difference. shall we go to ohio? >> i want to talk about virginia for a second. mark, republicans got some good news in the form of an ohio poll we're about to put up. but couldn't really enjoy that because this "washington post" poll showing a four-point lead in virginia, that's just as bad news for republicans as the ohio poll was good news. >> i thought for a while that people were overly assuming virginia and thinking romney couldn't win ohio. in some ways ohio is a better state for him. virginia has all the big groups that are the president's base, younger voters, african-american, suburban women. i think the romney campaign might have to start thinking about a path with ohio but without virginia which is doable, but it does involve winning another big state or two to make up for that loss. >> that's what i was going to ask you. as you look at that electoral map, we've always said you've got to win ohio. ohio's going to decide it. but

. look at ohio. right now the obama campaign has 140 field offices and the romney campaign has a third of that. those are long-early term relationships with the voters. soon after the president was elected they opened their first field office in ohio and have been there for years at this point. it translates to great advantages in early voting and it means we have seen surges from african-american and latino communities and it means they have a greater number of volunteers as well. >> i wonder about voter annoyance by oversaturation. it is everywhere. my television, my radio, i get e-mails. i have gotten telephone calls. i guess they think i am ypped or fair and balanced. i am fair and balanced. at some point you say if you contact me one more time i am not voting for you. >> that's what people say. they are frustrated. they can't sit through dinner without the phone ringing or watch television without six negative attack ads. they can't even go through their mail. even saturday afternoon people are knocking on their door. that's where volunteers and people that live in the community a

, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou

christie's response here. he has been praising president obama. something we typically don't hear. >> right. and governor christy is saying this is a bipartisan issue. this is not about politics. because take a look. we're here on a main street in atlantic city. several blocks from the waterfront of this bayside community and you can see a kayak was washed ashore because of the storm. and this is only a little bit of the damage we've been seeing. take a look at this. this is a small houseboat that was torn from the pier. you see the pilings it was attached to, and it was just swept into the middle of this intersection here on the street. and this is the type of damage and destruction, zoraida, that the president will see firsthand when he comes here later this afternoon to tour this damage. he will talk to first responders and victims of the storm, and he spent three days off the campaign trail, because of the storm, and now he has to walk a fine line of anything as president, to console families who have felt the impact of the storm, while making it not look like merely a photo-op. as you
of obama care day one. i will repeal obama care on day one with all the energy i can muster. >> all right. so we are dgoing to take mitt romney at his word. he will get all of that done on his first day in office. what about the next four years? what would a romney presidency really look like. joining me to nothiprognosticati melber, neera tanden, kate ton dawson. let's start with the tax plan. if there is something i believe mitt romney is invested in doing, it is the tax plan. he claims it is revenue neutral. >> you have to claim certain things. this goes for both sides. there is this thing called business cycle. this is what we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% an
said, we are back in earnest right now on the campaign trail. president obama will be going to wisconsin, colorado, nevada today. mitt romney in the state of virginia. and of course, joe biden, paul ryan, bill clinton, marco rubio, and many others fanned out across the country right now. as you said, we are in the closing days of this very, very tense campaign. >> it really was a remarkable picture of the president and the new jersey governor, and i think a refreshingly bipartisan picture to a lot of americans. mark preston, live in washington, always great to see you. thanks for being here this morning. at the bottom of the hour, we'll get to analysis of the campaign's final days from our political experts in residents. cnn contributor and republican strategist ana navarro and richard socarides and former senior adviser to president clinton. and in just five days, five days, it will finally be election night in america. cnn's live election coverage will begin at 6:00 p.m. eastern time. >>> and in sandy's aftermath, people in hoboken, new jersey are trapped in a nasty flood.
romney's moving in the right direction. they can't afford four more years of barack obama. >> shannon: something the president has had to talk a lot about and fielded a lot of questions about, of course, the deadly attack in benghazi. four americans left dead and a lot of unanswered questions at this point. the house has held one initial hearing on this. there are a number of investigations underway. what is your impression so far about what have you learned and not been able to learn? >> what's unfortunate, the white house has not been transparent. they promised it, but they have not been candid. yesterday, a local aquilliate in colorado asked the president, did they deny a request for help and the president couldn't answer that basic question. a lot more questions we have four dead americans and people injured. and it's just sad, we have to make sure that it never, never happens again and we can't slow down on the investigation because there is an election in place. i think we are will be slow walked. but there is a lot more to learn and the white house has not been transparent. >>
about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. t
